Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, Antão Vaz da Peceguina, Alentejo 2017
(at Wines of Portugal annual tasting, London, 20 Feb 2019)
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2023
Based in Albernoa in the heart of Baixo Alentejo, Malhadinha Nova's wines are always a delight, not least for the cute labels designed by the Soares family's children. This gives intense aromas of honeyed apricots and white flowers and a creamy palate of tropical fruit, citrus peel and a yeasty richness. It's full bodied and complex with a long, slatey wet stone note.
